Claiming FTC for forestry

If your business is involved in commercial forestry operations, you can claim the maximum credit for the fuel you use for any of the following activities:

  • planting or tending trees in a forest or plantation that is intended for felling
  • felling or thinning trees in a forest or plantation
  • transporting, milling or processing trees in the forest or plantation in which they were felled – if the transport is not on a public road
  • transporting timber to a sawmill or chip mill that is outside the forest or plantation but inside Australia – if the transport is not on a public road
  • milling timber at a sawmill or chip mill outside the forest or plantation
  • constructing and maintaining roads in a forest or plantation, if the roads are integral to eligible forestry activities – this does not include quarrying activities or transporting any materials you use for road building.
